television advertising, he has picked up some ground against pat toomey, the conservative tea party republican. pat toomey was tea party before there was a tea party. gwen: before tea party was cool. >> before it was invented, never mind cool. and the polls show that race is now neck-and-neck, a dead heat. what's going on there is the big mystery. part of it is that democrats who actually have a registration edge in pennsylvania -- there are more democrats than republican although some of them vote republican on election day -- democrats are coming back to the fold a little bit. some of this you would have expected all along, but -- and everybody expected this race to narrow up a little bit. but part of it is, one of the things you saw in those ads but also in the debate clip, negative advertising. every voter hates negative advertising but every politician knows that negative advertising works and sestak has hammered away charging that pat toomey, the conservative tea party republican, would cut social security, privatize social security is one charge, of course, a long story we c
you for joining us. let's start with the senate race, joe sestak and pat toomey. this is a fairly recent ad. >> i'm joe sestak, and this is bill. my family loves bill, but she can make a mess, and we have to clean it up, i think about belle when i see pat toomey's ads attacking me. now pat toomey is attacking me for cleaning up his mess. >> have we reached a new level here in campaign advertising? >> well, it's sort of cute. >> it's sort of cute? what part of that was sort of cute? i guess the dog was cute. >> the dog was cute. no cute. and the point is is a good one. i think that it's fair to remind voters that when joe sestak, when barack obama, when they came into power, they were dealt a hand of cards that was brutal. and it was a mess left by policies that pat toomey had supported. so i think the thrust of it is fair. i'm not sure i would have run it, but the thrust of it was fair. >> now, why is joe sestak behind? you've got a 1.2 million democratic registration edge in pa. and yet, sestak has trailed toomey for -- throughout this campaign. what is the problem here? is it ba
.s. senate race -- the candidates, joe sestak, and pat toomey, are meeting for the second time. it is taking place in pittsburgh. it is about one hour. >> good evening. the current senate seat is held by arlen specter, but he will no longer be a long-running and have them. this is a debate between republican pat toomey of allentown, pa., and a democrat congressman, joe sestak. we have had quite a flip to see the will go first on closing and opening statements -- congressman joe sestak will lead off in both. the answers will be one minute for questions. all of them will come from me, facebookas from wpxi's page. we also sent out to cameron got some video tape questions from you downtown in pittsburgh. let's get things started. we begin with joe sestak. >> thank you, david. we know the challenges to our state and this nation. tonight you have two men who have been shaped by different experiences in life, have different values on how to approach the challenges. pat toomey has come from wall street and washington, d.c. where he believes the answer can be found by giving breaks to large corporati
. small donors filled about one-third of the cefts chest of pat toomey and tony rubio. and more than half of the early donations given to joe miller and sharon angle. the tea partiers are getting a fair share from big donors, too. their top supporter is the fiscally conservative club for growth, which is paying for ads like this. >> club for growth pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> reporter: who is the muscle behind the club for growth? the club for growth gets a lot of its contributions from retirees, and these are not your average pensioners. these are people who former c.e.o.s or leaders in industry. >> reporter: the club for growth has been around 11 years and supported republicans long before there was a tea party. this year, its tom three beneficiaries are tea party-backed republicans running for senate, including nearly $700,000 for pat toomey. legal last year, he happened to be president of the club for growth. but if it's small donors setting apart the midterms, it's not exclusive to the tea party. senator russ fine gold, a democrat, has raised 42% from p
. the former navy admirable, joe sest sestak, has caught the republican candidate, pat toomey, in the latest polls. we've got joe sestak here and ready to go. plus, is it really that hard for a republican candidate to name a single senator across the aisle? christine o'donnell it was. we'll get to that and our look at the race for the senate. and president obama and former president bill clinton hit the campaign trail to excite the democratic base. that's ahead. here we are, by the way, bringing a national television show to temple university in philadelphia with the democratic candidate for u.s. senate, congressman joe sestak. congressman sestak, sometimes an opponent sticks his chin and and all you have to do the punch it. here's pat toomey proving how much he believes in the private market and doesn't believe in government action. here he is on "morning joe" with kurt anderson saying he would do nothing to save the steel industry of pennsylvania. >> so, it was right for the steal industry to go away? >> it had a lot of problems. some of which were self-inflicted, some from labor contracts
is joe sestak. >> democratic candidate joe sestak and republican pat toomey vying for the senate in pennsylvania, each seeking to describe the other as extremist. of course during the debate last night, they face off for the second time tomorrow night in pittsburgh. it's a race getting closer and closer tonight. right now of toomey ahead, sestak closing, though some people think that voter turnout will not really help sestak as much as he needs. but how do you see this when you look at this campaign, both these guys describing each other as extremists, but pat toomey has moved very much toward the center of the campaign from previous campaigns. >> he clearly has. he was sort of the tea party before the tea party was cool, because when he ran previously against specter and lost. and this time sort of the electorate and the mood of the country has caught up to him. he's riding the wave. what democrats are hoping for is the enthusiasm gap will close not just in this race, but in senate races, as more democrats start to pay attention, i think this will be a turnout battle, and it wil
when year being dishonest, joe, i'm going to call you on it. >> the fight of pat toomey against sestak. and tomby had been leading but the gap is closing. one of the races tightening across the country. tomby will be a guest on fox news sunday and chris wallace joins us with a preview of today's show. good morning, chris. >> good morning, melanie. >> and they both say we're not a proxy for the political scene and everyone is looking at them this way. >> i think it's fair to say that if tomby doesn't win it for the republicans, this is arlen specter's seat, there is no way the republicans get to the net gain of ten seats and they need to regain control of the senate. so this is a very important race for both parties on election day. you're exactly right, tomby had a lead as recently as labor day of about 8.5 points, and now down to 2 points. there are two factors there. one is the natural coming home of democrats. they get more excited as the race begins to close. and christine o'donnell, the delaware candidate, you say what does chef to do with pat toomey. and delaware is next to penns
pat toomey who is running in pennsylvania, if you ask them about abortion, they would say something like, look, i'm opposed to it, but i understand there are other viewpoints and move on. 15-second answer. >> ken buck gives a ten-minute answer. that's the problem in a nutshell. he is untested. he walks himself into these rhetorical traps that he can't get out of. >> michael bennett. >> michael bennett strikes me -- i can't tell you how many democrats come up to me and are just wanting -- willing michael when net bennett to win it reminds me of wofford in 1984 and the senate race. >> gosh, he was appointed to this. he's not a veteran politician. like ken buck, he's not a veteran politician but seems more comfortable and poised, understands his role a bit better. people think, gosh, he should win. but that may not happen. >> and run, i think run in terms of ads, running a terrific campaign. wins in a normal year. the one thing i would say out of that "meet the press clip" even though he has not been in washington that long, i'm not sure referencing the gdp is something that average pe
to turn it over mr. ben et there. that turned red. you had pennsylvania turn over to pat toomey, joe sestak, a tight, tight race here. here in nevada if you have sharron angle giving harry reid fits out there, now, 47-47. just like that, more importantly, wolf, you know this -- part of the strategy that's worth bearing in mind, there are tight races in california where barbara boxer who's in a state long been considered completely state for democrats, she's considered completely safe is getting really a tight run from carly fiorina. as the republicans pour money into this campaign, they know that the effect is it forces democrats to put effort into protecting something they didn't want to have to protect. and where did we see that last? in president obama's campaign. they did the same thing to john mccain and hillary clinton -- forced them to defend the states they shouldn't have had to defend. and that allowed them to continue building up the lead. it doesn't take that many more people out there until you have this out on the field. what-if scenario of nine seats, wolf. that's what
something more hard hitting like this. >> congressman pat toomey, he sided with wall street, voting for unfair trade deals with china. >> or this. >> he hopes that you will forget thaw voted for a republican budget to privatize medicare, that since he first ran for congress he said we should privatize social security. >> if you recognize that voice, what should democrats do and what should we make of this public review of the president's approach. republican strategist ed rolands is with us tonight. it's remarkable, your friend, james carville, stan gene berg said the president's message is okay but it's weaker than what you should be doing. lits listen to an extended comment. >> they took a record surplus and came back with a record deficit by the time i took office. now they are talking about deficit reduction. i bring this up not to relate gate the past. i just don't want to relive the past. >> now n. this memo, mr. carville and greenberg say it's very strong with african-american voters but compared to the other messages it falls very short. that message framework, meaning the p
-american religious leaders in philadelphia. sestak was trailing 46 to 41% from pat toomey. on the heels of that, now to ron who has more from philadelphia. good morning. and my question to you would be, these last-minute endorsements, how might they turn the tide for joe sestak? >> well, here in philadelphia, the endorsement of the black clergy organization is different because it seems to get the tone out. philadelphia is a democratic base along with pittsburgh, but more importantly philadelphia. the dynamic of the race has been that pat toomey has been leading. he's an a anti-tax, anti-big government group. he's been leading in the polls consistently. there have been a couple of polls lately, however, that have suggested that sestak might be narrowing the gap. one has him tied. one has him a point or so ahead. those are outliers. for the most part, toomey has been in the lead which is why president obama is coming here today and michelle obama is coming here monday to try and drum up the race, to spike the democratic party here in philadelphia and pennsylvania. if they hold on to the senate, this
allen live in philadelphia for us. ron, the latest poll shows pat toomey leading by seven points. what is joe sestak doing in the closing days to close that gap? >> trying to excite democrats about his candidacy and get out the vote on tuesday. that's why president obama was here on yesterday. that's why michelle obama will here monday night at the university of pennsylvania as the final push goes right down to the wire. this is a state that's perhaps a metaphor for the democrats' problems in 2010. president obama won here by ten points in a state that had been trending blue for the past decade, but toomey, pat toomey has been leading consistently through the fall and sestak trailing. not only for the senate race, but the threat of republicans winning back the governorship as well and several congressional seats could go to republicans. here, they are expecting bloodbath we've been taking about to really happen in pennsylvania and to turn the state red again. joe sestak trying to get out the vote. trying to get volunteers to knock on the door. so far, his campaign has not generated the
have pat toomey leading all along, the governor's race where the republican has been leading all along. several seats that are in jeopardy that are held by democrats. this is a state that obama won. he's essentially here trying to get out the voters who voted for him and who have not been traditional voters in the democratic pool. after the event here, the mayor here michael nutter was quoted as saying that people are starting to understand that this race here in 2010 is really about 2012 and president obama's re-election. that was a message to the people of philadelphia who voted for obama but have been pretty unenthusiastic about joe sestak, the democratic candidate for sfaet. obama has been here three times. michelle obama is coming on monday. that gives you an indication of how important democrats see trying to pull out a victory here for joe sestak who has been trailing to pat toomey. >> thank you very much, ron. let's go florida now and ron mott. you have a new angle on a story that we've been following about who was trying to talk kendrick meek into dropping out of the race. he
. in pennsylvania, the race extremely height, republican pat toomey holding a slight lead over you sustak. and in alaska, another close race. and it gets down to the wire. they're holding nothing back, turning to television using it as a weapon, blitzing the air waves with ads, trying to win any undecided voters to their side. >> in pennsylvania, republican pat toomey and -- are going against each other. >> it's sad what happen to joe sestak. he served our country well, then he win to washington, dc. government healthcare and job-killing energy taxes. >> made my sick to bail out the banks about i had to clean up the necessary left behind by these guys. they let wall street run wild. now pat toomey is attack me for killing up his mess. >> joe miller wants less interference from washington, but his opponent says miller wants to shrink the federal government too much. >> the senate -- it worked to lower energy coles and create jobs for all alaskans. >> how much would that cost to eliminate the department of education, transfer federal lands, manage unemployment insurance and administer medic
pat toomey. >> they let wall street run wild. now pat toomey is attacking me for cleaning up his mess. >> toomey is a former congressman and a fiscal conservative. >> we really need him in washington, so you make sure you get him across the finish line, okay? >> reporter: toomey, who led a conservative washington interest group, is campaigning as an outsider against sestak, a congressman. >> he voted for the stimulus and obama's massive health care takeover. >> reporter: if any state should be a safe halven for president obama and the democrats, even this year, it's pennsylvania. president obama carried it by ten wouldn'ts. there are 2 million more democrats than republicans. now it's blue state threatening to turn red. >> i think the government is going crazy with their bailouts. >> i thought bush did a lot better job than obamis doing. >> reporter: the candidates are whacking each other for being too extreme. >> he's to the left of nancy pelosi. >> he's on the fringe of his party. >> reporter: toomey accuses sestak for being a rubber stamp for the democratic party. >> he's been in c

prohibited federal funding for abortion. >> all right. >> so there. >> so let's see. pat toomey, hey, you're part of reckless spending, george bush era, joe sestak, you're part of the barack obama spend and stimulus era. the fact of the matter is, though, the president of the united states didn't want joe sestak in the race. he wanted -- >> give you another joe at the white house. >> specter has been there 100 years. >> i know. it's hard to remember that's whose seat it was. it's hard to remember because he was a republican and then democrat. was there media boy as at all during that debate last night? george stephanopoulos was the moderator. >> he used to work for bill clinton. clearly he was a partisan at one point. >> anyway, he asked this question of toomey regarding sarah palin. >> sarah palin stepped up her activity this year. yesterday, she put out a notice of endorsement on facebook asking pennsylvania voters to get behind you, the democratic party put out a statement saying that you have more in line with that party. do you think she's qualified to be president? >> i think that
and control of the senate is up for grabs. we'll sit down with two candidates in key battlegrounds. pat toomey, the republican nominee in pennsylvania, who has seen his big lead disappear. and democratic governor joe manchin of west virginia, who is playing up his anti-obama credentials. then, juan williams speaks out. >> when i get on a plane, if i see people who are in muslim garb, i get worried, i get nervous. >> chris: and is fired by national public radio. when does political correctness become censorship? juan and our sunday regulars discuss the controversy. and our power player of the week. a different kind of sports owner. all right now on "fox news sunday." and hello again from fox news in washington. in the fight for control of the senate, 37 seats are in play. and republicans need a net gain of ten seats to take control. it will come down to a handful of tight contests like west virginia, where popular democratic governor joe manchin is in a close race against republican john raese. we'll have more on that battle shortly. and in pennsylvania, democrat joe sestak is trying to hold on
between joe sestak and joe toomey. pat toomey, 48% to 44%. joe sestak is shoring up the base and his support among unaffiliated voters, nearly double what it was earlier and this race leaning barely in the republican direction, but pennsylvania is a state strong for the democrats and fairly handily in the recent elections. >> and it will be if they get out for democrats there. if they don't, they lose. i'm going to hear you call a toss up a lot over the next week. >> i think you're right. >> and video of autistic children physically restrained at school and one mom says this controversial practice needs to be stopped. look at this, and she joins us live next. npr gets millions of your hard earned dollars and outrageous demand to pull that fund: why she says, free the taxpayer. mmmm. you don't love me anymore do you billy? what? i didn't buy this cereal to sweet talk your taste buds it's for my heart health. so i can't have any? if you can deprive me of what can help lower my cholesterol... and live with yourself. right. mmm, i worry about your mother. cry herself to sleep every night
pat toomey has a seven-point lead over joe sestak. other polls show the race may be closer than that. ron, what are you hearing about voter turnout and whether the president's stop at temple university, michelle obama coming tomorrow, will that get those voters inspired to vote with joe sestak, who has not been popular with organized business folks? >> he was not the party's choice in the primary, as you well know. the party wanted him to step aside and make way for arlen specter to continue, since he was so helpful to president obama in passing key legislation. now that seems to be coming back to bite joe sestak, behind in the polls consistently. a couple of polls a week or so ago that brought him even or perhaps a point or two ahead, but those seem to be outliers. on the other side, pat toomey, a republican who is a very popular candidate within his party, three-term former congressman in 1999 to 2005. there's a lot of excitement about him. less government, more jobs, simple message. >> ron allen in pennsylvania. it will be a very, very close race. now to florida's contentious thre
. senate candidates there, pat toomey and joe sestak making last-minute pitches near philadelphia, fresh from their final debate in pittsburgh in this key toss-up race. >> the only time joe stood up to his party was to promote his own personal career. the fact is last year joe sestak voted with nancy pelosi 100% of the time, on everything. he accepted this entire agenda. >> one of the zainiest ideas i've heard is when he wants to eliminate all taxes for corporations. in fact, he says buying american, in his book, is an unfortunate tendency. >> congressman robert brady is chairman of the philadelphia democratic party and joins us now. hey, congressman. you've got your work cut out for you because this race, as many have in the past, will likely turn for democrat joe sestak on what the turnout is in philadelphia. >> yes, that's true. what we do in philadelphia will overcome other parts of the state that may not turn out as high as we do. you know when a candidate has a 20 or 30-point lead or behind, we don't matter. but when you're in the majority of victory, when you in the 5%, you know,
